At the airport in Finland, I was looking for something local to nibble on, instead of the usual chips or chocolate. In the fridges I found some elk salami. I do like salami, and I’d never tried elk before, so now was as good a time as any.
The meat was very dark, much darker than normal pork salami. Then when I tasted it, it also had a much stronger flavor. It reminded me a lot of beef salami that I’ve had at breakfast buffets in Muslim places like Dubai and Malaysia. As a fan of salami, the strong-tasting elk salami was a really nice treat. I don’t think I’ll come across it anytime soon, but if I do I think it will be time for round two.
